About This Activity

High school sweethearts April and Mike Clarke grew up in Sharpsburg and Senoia. They both attended ECHS, where they fell in love. They have been married for over 25 years with two great kids, Meghan and Michael.

In 2009 the Clarke family received news that April had been diagnosed with M.S. (Multiple Sclerosis). M.S. is a disease where the body’s immune system damages the nerves of the brain and spinal cord. There is currently no cure for this disease however; it can be treated with medication. We are thankful that April is now in remission.

Soon after in December 2013, her husband Mike was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrigs disease), ALS affects the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. This will lead to being completely paralyzed and death within two years of being diagnosed. There is no cure for this disease.

The Clarkes are experiencing a lot of medical cost at this time.  Medical expenses will increase with continuous care for Mike. Due to Mike’s illness, he is no longer able to work. What use to be a two income household, is now a struggling one income household. We are asking friends, family, and the community to make donations to Clarke. Please send it to the Clarke Medical Fund at United Bank 61 Bullsboro Dr. Newnan GA 30263.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
